ladies Cards

27th June 2012

On Monday 25th June, the ladies, as usual met to make some cards.

The cards I put together for this class are simple cards, but taught them some new techniques which is what classes are all about really; besides the companionship, it's about learning something new while having fun and letting our creativity shine.

The first card we made is chocolate, pink and white. We used some new Stampin Up stamps and die cutters which match the stamps. The brown background was embossed. Each person chose their own sentiment, as well as the layout of their flourishes, As you will see from the photo of the ladies holding their cards, (of which they are justifiably proud) they have created cards which while using the same card, colours and embellishments, each card is uniquely their own.

The second card I wanted to be black and white, then decided that just a touch of pink would finish it off.  Again their is embossing, cutting, layering stamping, and again each lady has individualised their cards.

I'm really please with the way this group is developing, their confidence and ability is coming along very nicely. They are all happy with the end product of each days crafting and that is all that's important.

And here they are, 4 very proud and happy ladies with their cards.

Happy Crafting,
